Roseann joined Ngong Road Children’s Foundation (NRCF) in 2007 as one of the beneficiaries for the education program from primary school through Secondary School to University. Her education journey was made successful through the financial support of her sponsor, Steve Lewis.
Roseann graduated from GSU Primary School with an above-average grade point average. This gained her a place at a Nairobi girls’ high school. She earned an extraordinary performance and a university admission grade, and she enrolled at Maseno University to study Geospatial Information Science with IT, a field that ladies have traditionally shunned.
She was relieved to have completed her four-year program.
Roseann has held several leadership positions in her education journey beginning as a squad leader at Ngong Road Children’s Foundation, a Deputy School Captain, football Captain and Captain of students Campaign Against Drugs at her high school. In Maseno University, she was a class representative.
She began her career at Kenya National Highways Authority, KeNHA, and later joined Digireg Kenya as a data operator in Kisumu County where she currently works. In her spare time, Roseann volunteers as an Environmental Champion and participates in the UN-HABITAT- COVID-19 mitigation activities. Roseann also organizes a charity program at St Mary Magdalene Oasis of Peace Children’s Home in Kisumu County and a Street feeding program for street Children.
We wish Roseann a successful career journey.
